Any device

Libusb is a C++ library that any developer can use to gain access to a USB device. This helps create an application that can interact with other devices.

Any system

Libusb is a highly portable way to create files that interact with a USB connection no matter the device’s version.

Libusb is a portable development tool that’s usable across almost any operating system. This portability is ideal for developers who are creating indie games or other software that requires a connection to a USB device.

Libusb supports all current USB versions, ensuring that any computer using your application can connect their additional USB connected devices such as gamepads or drawing tablets. As the application supports version one to three, there’s no lack of speed when using a newer device.

To ensure that libusb will function on your computer, it launches in a user-mode that does not require admin permissions to launch or function. This allows the application to run faster and on any profile on your Windows computer, even the non-admin ones.

One of the best features of libusb is that it’s incredibly lightweight itself, with the .zip file requiring less than a single megabyte. This makes the application ideal to add to your USB when working on a web development project with colleagues or friends.

However, as Windows 10 no longer offers a 32-bit system, the application is unavailable for use on Windows 10 computers. Fortunately, there are alternatives designed to work on a 64-bit system. You can uninstall the old file through your control panel.

Where can you run this program?

Libusb is available for Windows 7 and up (but not Windows 10), as well as macOS 10.12 and up. There are also versions available for Linux distributions.

Is there a better alternative?

No. Libusb is extremely portable, unlike its main alternative libusbk, which is only available for Windows computers.

Our take

Libusb is an excellent way for you to insert your software quickly and easily onto any computer regardless of its operating system.

Should you download it?

Yes. If you’re a developer or frequently transfer files, then this application is a must-install after extracting the file.
